During the summer transfer window, Manchester United successfully secured the signing of Cameroonian goalkeeper Andre Onana, but their attempts to bring in Belgian defensive midfielder Amadou Onana were unsuccessful.

Reports in August suggested that Manager Erik ten Hag had requested the acquisition of the playmaker from Everton, but the deal fell through. According to Foot Mercato, Manchester United is now keen on securing the services of the holding midfielder, who is also attracting interest from Barcelona. The French media outlet indicates that a transfer fee exceeding 50 million euros may be required to secure his signature.

Journalist Sebastien Denis, reporting on Foot Mercato, stated on his X account that Manchester United is highly interested in finally signing Amadou Onana, with the possibility of him leaving next month. Barcelona has already held discussions with the midfielder’s representatives, and the potential cost of the transfer is around 55 million euros (£47.6 million).

Despite a ten-point deduction, Everton has climbed out of the relegation zone with four consecutive victories in the Premier League, with Onana delivering standout performances. In the recent victory over Chelsea, he played a crucial role in keeping a clean sheet and even scored a goal in the 2-0 win against Burnley last weekend.

Currently, Manchester United’s primary defensive midfielder, Casemiro, is sidelined due to injury. In his absence, on-loan signing Amrabat has been deployed in the defensive midfield role. Given Casemiro’s aging status, there is a need to replace him with a young and energetic holding midfield star. In this context, 22-year-old Onana appears to be a suitable candidate.

The question arises: Should Manchester United invest £47.6 million to sign Amadou Onana next month?
